A Card to Brighten a Gloomy Day

Rainy, gloomy day here in that means a good day to play in the studio.  I decided to make this card for two Challenges shown below....a color challenge of Bright Pink, Black, and Gray combined with a Sketch Challenge. I started with a base of Black CS, added a panel of Designer Paper, some ribbon, a Pink circle with  rhinestones and stamped Flourishes, and finished with a Grey Pattern Paper stamped with a Flourish and Sentiment in black and matted in Dark Grey CS. This card is a bit more dramatic than I usually make.
CR84FN 38: Use Bright Pink, Black, and Gray
Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge: See below. ( I always forget this challenge closes on Friday so I often miss doing this challenge.)
Simon Says: Uses dies and or punches.

Stamps: MFP's sentiment from "Happy Pansies" and Panacci Clear Stamps Flourishes
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and London Fog
Papers: GKD Black CS,  BasicGrey Patterns from Olivia (I think) Paper Pad
Ribbon and Rhinestones from stash
Spellbinders Beaded Circle Die and Rectangle Dies
Thanks for your comments. I love your visits. Theresa

It's gorgeous and you do dramatic so well. Love the bright pink and black with the greys. Sunny here but a bit cooler than I'd like...guess fall is really on it's way and if it's gets into the 40's again tonight I think I may just have to turn on the heat..... "Hugs" Carol

Wow, love your take on the sketch. The pink and black color scheme is always a hit in my book and the die cut is the perfect girlie touch!!
